Ed Decker Excommunicated? For What?

 Here is an exact copy of my actual letter of excommunication from the Mormon Church. I am posting it because of the many vicious lies and rumors that continue to be spread about me by Mormons who just can’t understand that I would actually want leave the LDS church –  especially because I had become a born-again ChristianThe actual original document is on file at the Special Collections Library
at Utah State University,
The Ed Decker Collection #210
 THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTSTHE OFFICE OF THE STAKE PRESIDENTBellevue, Washington StakeNov. 14, 1976

Mr. J. Edward Decker

Issaquah, Wa.[sic] 98027

Dear Brother Decker:

In follow-up to the High Council Court held on October 21, 1976, this letter is to formally advise you that as of that date you were EXCOMMUNICATED from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This was the result of your request that your name be removed from the records of the Church. (Emphasis added)

As we hope you are aware, this action was taken without any animosity toward you by any member of the Church. In fact, our concern for your eternal salvation has increased rather than diminished.

As of this time, you have cut yourself off from any part or portion of the Celestial Kingdom. We must remind you that when the final decision was made, you were the one who requested that your name be removed from the records of the Church. This decision was yours and yours alone. (Emphasis added)Fortunately for you, the days of your probation in this life are not past. You still have the opportunity of making the principle of repentence [sic] effective in your life. How successful you will be in this endeaver [sic] will be ultimately between you and the Lord, but there is no minimizing the long, up-hill battle you have before you. Anything we can do to assist you, working through your Bishop or anyone who may succeed him, we will be more than happy to do. Nothing would give us more joy than to be able to reconvene the High Council Court for the purpose of authorizing your re-baptism into the Church. (Emphasis added)

May the Lord bless you to accomplish this,

Sincerely your brethern [sic]

Signed: the 3 members of the BELLEVUE WASHINGTON STAKE PRESIDENCY
